Somewhere at the end of last year I came across the Instagram account @NewInTheHague: a page that gives updates on new restaurants, shops and bars opening in Den Haag. Very handy for people who -like myself- love to go on little (food) adventures. Through them, I found out that a donut shop called Donuts & Co had recently opened. Just a slight glance at their Instagram page was enough to convince me that I just needed to get my hands on one of those donuts!
By now, I’ve actually already been twice. Once on my own (hey, don’t judge me!) and once with a friend, who surprisingly enough hadn’t heard of Donuts & Co yet. So I am here today to spread the love in case you haven’t either!
You know what makes me really happy? Good, traditional foods prepared like how someones mother or grandmother would. You know what makes me even happier? When I stumble across good, traditional foods by pure accident. Especially when I’m unfamiliar with them! This happened to me on a Sunday a while back, when me and my boyfriend where on a search to find an extra long USB mini cable -for gaming, of course -. I knew there would be a little street market that day, but I didn’t know that I would be in for a little culinary treat! One that was also very welcome, since I was suffering from a severe case of wanderlust again.
While walking past the little stalls with homemade jams, organic honey and all sorts of vintage treasures, we passed a little stall that emitted the most amazing smell of fresh, sweet bread. The stall had a sign, which read Kürtőskalács. I had never heard of it, which made me all the more excited!
